I used to feel like a weakling because I don’t have the physical stamina other people have.

 I require a LOT of sleep.

 Once, I told my doctor about how I often feel exhausted in the afternoon.

 She turned to me and said, “You know, if you are tired in the afternoon – you should take a nap.”

 It was a ridiculously easy solution.

 But not the one I wanted.

 I wanted her to make me into someone who didn’t require a lot of sleep.

 There is freedom in accepting how I am wired.

Now, when I am tired, I enjoy a nap.  tired, exhaustion, comparison, depresson
